There has been a rekindling of interest in primary dental care research. However, there has been little investigation of the factors affecting these studies. This thesis examines primary dental care research pragmatically and from the dentists perspective. The Pulpotomy Study was undertaken In the northwest of England as a preliminary, prospective, pragmatic, longitudinal, multi-centred, cohort study in primary dental care. Forty primary care dentists undertook 334 pulpotomies In 316 participants on symptomatic primary molar teeth using Caustinerf Deciduous and/or Creosote BP. Pulpotomies were successful at reducing pain and sepsis. Over five years 77.3% of pulpotomies were successful. Pulpotomies were considered a suitable method of managing the child with pain and sepsis.
